Do not dine with a group of people and expect to pay separate because it can't be done. Food was nothing special - cornbread was dry and NO SWEET TEA even though they advertised having some.

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has
played a vital role in the history of New York City.
Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new
businesses and developments go up next to local

bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and
historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with
big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and

If you have a large group, you want to call ahead to see if they can accommodate you. You might find yourself standing outside for a while.
